Liver biopsy is currently the gold standard for assessing liver fibrosis and non reliable non invasive approach is available, therefore a suitable serologic Biomarker is needed. Several biochemical markers have shown promise for the detection of advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis. The aim of the present work is to study the diagnostic value of serum hyaluronic acid (SHA) and matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) as indicators for the stage of hepatic fibrosis, and to correlate the liver pathology and… Expand
